IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED YOU DELETE THE NON MARKET VERSION IF YOU HAVE IT BEFORE INSTALLING THIS

Some other things I've thrown together should be up there soon too!

Possibly... the problem with iOS is the lockdowns, while I *could* sort an iOS app you'd either need a Jailbroken phone, or I would need to pay Apple a stupid amount for a developers account.

Never say never though!

Looks great, Ady! It addresses my major problem of visiting the site through the browser on my phone: constantly having to resize the screen in order to tap on the correct link.

Excellent, Im glad its useful for you.

Thanks for installing it too, I half expected everyone to be scared of installing non market apps.

I downloaded it but it won't install on my Motorola Backflip because it doesn't have the Settings > Applications > Tick "Unknown Sources" section anywhere.... so it hates unknown sources. :(

Are there many of you who can't install apps unless its via the Market?

Its $25 for an official market license which i might buy if thats the case (Im just tight and don't want to spend $25 for no reason)

Scared of installing non market apps? Where's the sense of adventure? I just downloaded the app. Very nice. Thanks for putting it together. Although I've got no problems with non-market apps, if you need to do an official market release, I don't mind pitching in a little to help cover some of the cost to show my appreciation.

A little issue I've noticed with the app (I'm using a G2/Desire Z), when I click the back button, instead of just going back a page, it backs out of the app. It's not a big issue, as I can still navigate around just find (I just have to keep reminding myself to not hit the back button), but I wanted you to be aware of that minor issue. Again, thanks for putting the app together.

That is interesting, I'll look into that, Im a little hampered by the lack of devices to actually test it on so you lot are in part my guinea pigs.

I have noticed some differences in "back" behaviour in general on the devices I do have access to, further compounded by my tablet which only has a "soft" back button in the status bar as opposed to an actual button.

Cheers for the heads up.

Yeah, no problem. I'm certainly no developer, but I know one of the more frustrating aspects of Android developing can be the way the different devices work. I've also got a G1/Dream (running an older CM mod), and am more than happy to test apps on either device.

Thats handy to know, I've only got access to a pair of ageing LG540s' running a heavily customized CM7 (So Android 2.3), the Android Emulator on PC and some random junky Chinese tablet running Modroid (Android 2.2) and the differences in what works and how between the two is astounding, not quite as annoying as trying to get stuff working right on HTCs with their weird but cool Sense framework.

It appears to me that the Official market actually seemlessly distributes different .apk files depending on the downloading client device to get around a lot of these issues, perhaps I will be needing that Android Market license after all rather than hosting a score of .apks here all targetted at different devices and praying the user knows whats what!

Posting from the new app now. Links work seemlessly from app to browser. It still backs out of the app instead of just back a page, but that's also still not a big deal. I don't know why, but there's a bit of lag time when inputting on both the qwerty pad and the swype keyboard.

I downloaded Ziggy too. I was heartbroken when Al didn't suddenly appear. :)

Im still trying to nail down the back button issues.... Will investigate the input lag, is that new since the Market Version?

Heh, didn't realise Ziggy was showing already, its a bit lame but it was a quick bit of fun to knock it up.

I had not noticed any input lag on the other version. I'm rebooting now- sometimes after a busy day, my phone just needs a little nap.

Edit: Yep. Sleepy phone just needed a little lie down. The lag is gone after rebooting.
